Several weeks ago we recommended the filmed capture of the play of THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL starring Cicely Tyson. Today we are recommending the 1985 film adaptation of Horton Foote's play by director Masterson from a screenplay by Foote and starring Geraldine Page, John Heard and Rebecca De Mornay. Carrie Watts is living the twilight of her life trapped in an apartment in 1940's Houston, Texas with a controlling daughter-in-law and a hen-pecked son. Her fondest wish -- just once before she dies -- is to revisit Bountiful, the small Texas town of her youth which she still refers to as "home." Roger Ebert said "The movie surprises us: It's not really about conflict between the generations, but about the impossibility of really understanding that you are even a member of an older generation, that decades have gone by." THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL (1985) is streaming on Amazon Prime, Tubi, Kanopy, Fandor, and PlutoTV or available to rent from Amazon. Geraldine Page took home an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL.
